We Do Have Some Barmy Politicians!

I couldn’t believe what I was reading when an article appeared about Lib. Dem. MP Jenny Willott complaining that girls are scarred for life by the tradition of: “Pink for girls and blue for boys”.

She told Parliament that this idea “hampers girls at school and holds women back in the workplace” Where on earth did she get that load of bunkum? According to her, the ‘(en)gendering’ of toys, i.e. dolls for girls and cars for boys, “instructs children on how they are supposed to feel and behave”.  She is quoted as saying, “It is not fair to make little girls feel that they should not be kicking footballs or building with Lego, and it is equally unfair to make little boys feel ashamed of playing netball or of pushing a doll along in a pushchair,”

In her opinion, ‘a girl growing up with dolls will never have the opportunity to find out if they could be an engineer in adult life, and conversely, a boy who does not have a sewing kit will never know if he could be a great designer.’ What a load of rubbish. So I suppose according to her theory, all the world’s great male designers spent their growing years playing with sewing kits!

According to this crazy woman, (I hesitate to use the word politician):  “It is a really important issue and it’s fundamentally important to our economy as well, it’s not just a side issue as I think it sometimes can be portrayed. It is a really important one to the future economy of this country.”

Oh! So now the economy of the nation is in jeopardy because little girls play with dolls and little boys kick a football. I am sorry Ma’am but you are a raving lunatic.

Boys Only

There are bitter complaints by feminists about the toy manufacturers who ‘gender’ toys in advertisements, complaining that for example, Meccano  sets are aimed at boys who will later all become engineers while the girls will not have a chance because they play with doll’s.

What she fails to realize is that no child of three, four or even eight has any idea what they will do when they become an adult. That is the furthest thing from their minds. No girl child of five is going to think, ‘Oh! I have to be a nursery school teacher because mummy keeps buying me dolls!’ No boy will think at such an age, ‘I am going to be an engineer because daddy bought me a Meccano set!’

It is not until much later in their young lives that any child develops an idea of what profession they wish to follow. With the state of the job market these days, for many you take what you can get so choice doesn’t really come into it.

Women Engineers Are Not As Rare As You Think!

Women Engineers Are Not As Rare As You Think!

With the  gender equality achieved by women at the moment, there is little to stop any woman from becoming an engineer or a male from being a dress designer. Regarding the latter, most of the world’s top designers are men, and I’m sure they didn’t all get sewing kits as children. The crux of the matter is always: ‘Do you have the qualifications and are you good enough at your job.

What Is The Fuss About? We have 'Gay' Dolls For Boy's These Days!

What Is The Fuss About? We have ‘Gay’ Dolls For Boy’s These Days!

When I say this, I am not denying that there is still some bias in the world, but if a woman clearly has better qualifications than a man she has a good chance of getting the job. There are some jobs that are traditionally reserved for men like working in a coal mine or on the shop floor of steel mills. This has nothing to do with gender, but more to do with the fact the work is extremely arduous and requires levels of strength that women do not possess.

I just cannot believe that our politicians would waste time debating such a stupid topic, and it makes me wonder if this woman is fit for the job she has been given by those who voted for her. Mind you, if asked she would probably put it all down to the fact that she only ever got dolls to play with as a child.

British Political Correctness Gone Mad – Again!

An Early Learning Centre Shop

Once again the English sickness of political correctness has surfaced in the most ludicrous of ways. It came to light today that outlets of the Early Learning Centre (ELC) had removed a pig from a farm set for children so as not to cause offence to Muslim and Jewish parents!

A Child's Toy - Such An Insult?

The play set for toddlers called Happyland Goosefeather Farm normally contains a cow, sheep, chicken, horse, dog and pig along with assorted farm buildings. The omission was discovered by parents buying the toy who found the pig was missing, even though a sty and appropriate sound affect was there.

One enterprising mother contacted the ELC asking why there was no pig. The reply got her to boiling point very quickly; “Previously the pig was part of the Goosefeather farm, however due to customer feedback and religious reasons this is no longer part of the farm.”

It would seem the company exports the farm toy to many other countries and they had negative feedback from certain ones (Islamic no doubt), so for this reason the pig was scrapped. Now, after many complaints from UK parents, they have decided to reinsert the pig and not sell to those countries that object to it.

That’s what they should have done in the first place!

As one parent put it; “If you don’t like the pig, don’t buy the set”.

The Offensive Animal

In the sixties and seventies, the age-old children’s nursery rhyme Ba Ba Black Sheep was banned for being ‘racist’ because it mentioned the dreaded word black, this was a time when racial relations between black immigrants and white folks were not at their best. Now, because we have so many Muslim immigrants we are going down the same path! How stupid can you get! Some righteous ‘holier than thou’ people have even voiced the opinion that Christmas should be banned because it ‘upsets the Muslims’.

A Man With A Job To Do - Can He?

It is my sincere desire to see Cameron and his government stop this insane phobia among certain members of the British public by laying down the law, and if necessary changing our laws to prohibit such stupidity.

The governments message to any immigrant who comes to live in Britain should be: If you don’t like our culture, go back where you came from.

Multi Culturalism - You Must Be Joking!

I know the British have a reputation for being ‘laid back’ but when the nation pampers to immigrants we do ourselves, our country, and our culture tremendous harm. These acts are carried out by narrow-minded people who are mesmerised by the fact that we have become a ‘multi-cultural’ society. That’s bullshit, for as Angla Merkel of Germany recently pointed out, multi-culturalism doesn’t work (see my blog of 26/10/2010), and all the ass-kissing in the worlds will not change that!

It is no wonder the Muslim population is convinced they will rule Britain before 2050 for we are handing it to them on a plate. We are already on the slippery slope solely due to the disparity in the birth-rates between ethnic Brits and Muslims (theirs being three times ours), but some people seem to want to hurry the process by denying our basic customs and freedoms.

The Once Proud Symbol Of A Once Proud Nation

When will the rank and file in Britain wake up to the fact that our entire culture is soon to disappear forever, swallowed by the monster that is Islam and Sharia Law.

Churchill will be turning in his grave!
